What is BB Cream?


BB Creams are latest craze in cosmetics among the women in Asia and now US.

BB Cream (an abbreviation for Blemish Balm Cream) is among the hottest beauty products in Asia right now. This cream is said to have originated in Germany as an ointment dermatologists would prescribe to patients who have undergone laser skin surgery for its soothing and skin-regenerating properties.

Popular Korean celebrities were the first to start using the cream for beautification purposes and because K-Dramas or Koreanovelas (a.k.a. Korean drama shows) are pretty big at the moment -- here in Asia at least -- a craze was born. The beauty trend has now spread from Korea to Japan to South East Asia and, last I heard, is already quickly making its way to Europe and the USA.

So what exactly is BB Cream and what does it do?

It is a skin care product that offers a few properties at the same time: Wrinkle Care + UV Protection+ Moisturizing + Tint/ Foundation
Doesn't it seem like every Asian actress is blessed with naturally flawless skin?

Well, maybe so, but now we know that they are also armed with a secret weapon, called the BB Cream.

BB stands for "Blemish Balm" and dermatologists initially used it to help laser surgery patients protect, soothe and regenerate their highly sensitive skin while also providing good coverage for post-laser scars and redness.

Asian celebrities (who I assume underwent aforementioned laser surgery) discovered this wonder cream and started using it. Korean cosmetic companies got wind of it, realized the business potential and adapted the technology and started making their own formulas, thus making it available to the public.

This "public" version of BB cream is suitable for all skin types and are targeted specially to those who have sensitive and acne-prone skin. It has the advantages of both skin care and makeup as it improves the skin's condition and evens out the skin tone while providing coverage for dark spots and other blemishes.

Stay tuned for new 2013 season, as we are getting ready to offer 2 BB creams with SPF 30 and SPF 50 all natural (mineral) sun protection.
